Metabo Compact Rotary Hammer

Most compact, lightweight and fastest drilling in their class 
March 2021 – West Chester, PA  Metabo Corporation, a leading German international manufacturer of professional-grade cordless and corded hand-held power tools and accessories in the US, introduces their compact range of rotary hammers and a new dust extraction accessory made in Germany.  
“We are excited to introduce two new compact rotary hammers, the 12V - Powermaxx BH 12 BL 16 and the 18V - BH 18 LTX BL 16, and our new universal dust extraction set, the ESA Plus. The new additions to our rotary hammer lineup give the end-user a lightweight option for drilling into masonry and concrete, especially when drilling overhead. Both tools have 2-mode operation for rotary hammering and rotation without impact. These tools feature Metabo’s brushless motors, making the hammers compact, lightweight, and the fastest drilling in their class”, said Terry Tuerk, Metabo’s Senior Product Manager. 
The 12V rotary hammer has a maximum torque of 88.5 in. lbs., the 18V has a maximum torque of 115 in. lbs. both with 1.3 joules. These rotary hammer’s powerful 5,250 BMP with a no-load speed of 0-730 rpm enable the rotary hammers to drill up to 5/8” in concrete and 2-5/8” in masonry. 
These tools are compact, lightweight and extremely fast. They are only 10 5/8” long and weigh about 4 lbs., even with a battery attached, helping to reduce worker fatigue while speeding up progress. 
The new rotary hammers are available as bare tools (12V: 600207840, 18V: 600324840). Metabo recommends the Ultra-M Compact 4.0 Ah Battery Kit for 12V and 18V  (12V: US625349002, 18V: US625367002). 
The Powermaxx BH 12 BL 16 and  BH 18 LTX BL 16 are packed with features, like VTC electronics (Vario-tacho-constamatic), technology that maintains RPM under load for faster drilling, especially in deeper holes. The tools include Metabo’s patented safety clutch system, which helps keep end-users safe when a bit jams. The tools also feature Metabo’s anti-vibration system, which decreases hand and arm vibrations, reducing end-user fatigue and protecting against long-term vibration-related disorders.  
Metabo’s new Universal Dust Extractor, ESA Plus (62377000), is ideal for dustless overhead drilling in areas where a dust extractor can’t reach. The ESA Plus includes an adjustable seal with a vacuum break and dust cap seal when using without a vacuum. 
The ESA Plus fits all Metabo SDS-Plus hammers or hammer drills with depth rods, and competitive tools with depth rods.  It is for use with 6” or 8” overall length SDS-Plus bits, 5/23” through 1-1/4” or up to 3/8” straight shank hammer drill bits.  When the 12V- Powermaxx BH 12 BL 16 and 18V -  BH 18 LTX BL 16 is paired with Metabo’s Universal Dust Extractor and a HEPA vacuum; the tools will function as an OSHA Table 1 compliant system. (18V: AS 18 L PC Vacuum or Corded ASR 35 Auto-clean HEPA Vacuum).
